A dye transfer print photograph of a model of the Kodak factory in Harrow, Middlesex, taken by an unknown photographer, c. 1940.

Kodak opened a factory in Harrow near London in 1891. It made cameras as well as photo paper, photochemicals and other accessories. The factory closed in 2016.

The model was on display at the Kodak museum. The dye transfer process was introduced in the 1930s. Black and white colour separation negatives are used to expose matrix films which are dyed cyan, magenta and yellow. The final print is made by superimposing these dyed images in perfect registration.
